Clearing the Obstructions

(Du‘aa Series – Part Four)

The driver is seated in his car, but cannot move forward as he is gridlocked in rush hour traffic… The passengers are aboard the aircraft, but it cannot take off due to the runway being obstructed… Indeed, encountering an obstruction or obstacle is among the most frustrating and disruptive experiences that one can suffer.

As discussed previously, by adhering to the sunnah method and etiquettes of making du‘aa, it is more likely that one’s du‘aas will be accepted. However, at the same time, it is necessary to understand that there are also certain obstructions that impede the acceptance of du‘aas.

In one hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) explained the condition of a person who had undertaken a long, arduous journey. His hair was dishevelled and his clothing was covered in dust. He raised his hands to the sky crying in supplication saying, “O my Rabb! O my Rabb (help me in my difficulty)!” However, his food and drink were haraam, his clothing was obtained from haraam sources, and his body was nourished with haraam. Thus, even though his condition was so pitiable and portrayed such desperation, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “How can his du‘aas ever be answered?” (Saheeh Muslim #2346)

The Sunnah Procedure of Du‘aa

(Du‘aa Series – Part Three)

Imagine a person who applies for a certain work position. However, when asked to fill in the application form, he does so incorrectly. He writes only his first name and leaves the section for his surname blank. He only writes half his ID number. He is told to write in pen, but instead uses a pencil. Finally, he completes only half the form, submitting it partially completed. Will this person receive the job? Highly unlikely! In fact, it is most probable that his application form will not even be considered, as he failed to adhere to the prescribed procedure when filling in the form.

In the very same way, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has taught us the sunnah procedure of engaging in du‘aa. By adhering to the sunnah procedure, insha-Allah our du‘aas will be received with acceptance. Below follows a brief description of the sunnah method of du‘aa:

The Mindset of the One Engaging in Du‘aa

(Du‘aa Series – Part Two)

Allah Ta‘ala has created this world as a place of systems. If any person wishes to acquire or achieve something, he adopts the means, follows the system, trusts in Allah Ta‘ala, and then if the outcome was destined for him by Allah Ta‘ala, he will be successful in attaining it. Thus, we find that when a person wants a child, there is a system of nikaah that is followed, after which a child may be born, nine months later. Likewise, if a person wants money, there is a system of working and earning that is in place.

In the very same way, it is the system of Allah Ta‘ala that the more one follows the sunnah in his life, and the more adab (respect and etiquette) one adopts, the more blessings and acceptance one will enjoy. This applies to all departments of life such as nikaah, acquiring the knowledge of Deen, engaging in ‘ibaadah, etc. Hence, this important principle applies when making du‘aa as well.

(Du‘aa Series – Part One)

As we traverse the journey of life, we find that the entire road is not scenic and picturesque. Rather, the road is intermittently dotted with various hurdles and challenges. In these moments of difficulty, each person looks around him, imploring assistance and seeking a helping hand.

When we ask any person for help, then it always has disadvantages. He may assist us, but it may be done grudgingly. If he assists us happily and wholeheartedly, then he may be prepared to render assistance once, twice or maybe thrice. If we thereafter implore him for further assistance, he may become irritated, or may even lack the means and resources to help us further. At times, we wish to ask a person for help, but the person is inaccessible and cannot be contacted. Often, a person renders assistance, but thereafter reminds you of his favour and regards you to be indebted to him. Sometimes, we mention our problems to a person, hoping to garner sympathy, but instead receive harsh criticism and a stern rebuke.

Last Updated on Friday, 02 April 2021 09:39

In order to gain maximum benefit from the blessed month of Ramadhaan, it is important that we set ourselves goals and also set aside adequate time for the achievement of these goals. In this regard, a “Ramadhaan Goal Achievement Guide” has been attached which if printed and adhered to, will assist us to keep track of our progress.

The goals chalked out in the guide are:

1. Qadhaa Salaah – If we have any qadhaa salaah, let us begin performing them in this blessed month. If we consistently perform our outstanding salaah in Ramadhaan, then although we may not be able to complete all that are outstanding in this month, insha-Allah through the blessing of this month, we will find it easy to continue performing them after Ramadhaan as well. The number of the respective salaah that are performed daily should be written in the corresponding block e.g. if 3 x ‘Asr Salaah were performed on the 10th, write “3” in the corresponding block.
